  • 5. CLOUD vs. SAAS Emergence of new technologies and applications generates, as always, a perceived lexical and semantic confusion "Cloud" is the technological platform (hardware and systems) underlying the applications themselves Saas applications must be considered as services that use the innovative Cloud technology morphology to better distribute their utility E-Learning is ideally suited to be packaged in SAAS business solutions, relying on Cloud infrastructures that manage all the technical features of channeling and utilization. CLOUD SAAS
  • 6. - Semantic clarity: your knowledge about Cloud Vs. SAAS - Where Cloud finishes and where SAAS starts Q & A CLOUD vs. SAAS
  • 7. THE CLOUD REVOLUTION Cloud allows the physical relocation of - Software applications - Hardware resources It must be considered as a corporate strategy aimed at: - Simplifying the work of the end users - Reducing company costs related to the maintenance of the technology equipment How is the market changing because of cloud? Unprecedented proliferation of cloud solutions Contraction of the old- fashioned software
  • 8. THE CLOUD REVOLUTION - Do you feel the revolution? - How are you facing Cloud? - What attracts you most and less? Q & A
  • 9. CLOUD POTENTIALS FOR E-LEARNING The architecture of cloud-based technology solutions fits perfectly with the technical needs of typical E-Learning softwares:  System scalability It allows a dynamic management of: - peaks of traffic - workload on the server hosting the courses
  • 10. CLOUD POTENTIALS FOR E-LEARNING The architecture of cloud-based technology solutions fits perfectly with the technical needs of typical E-Learning softwares:  Geographical distribution of the training activity Docebo Amazon CloudFront integration Serving 2 multinational corporates deliver “elastic” training in: U.S.A. - South America Europe - Asia Cloud to go beyond the “Great Firewall” SCORM objects worldwide delivery +20 servers all over the world
  • 11. CLOUDFRONT E-LEARNING DISTRIBUTION Amazon CloudFront is a content delivery network (CDN) with servers in:Amazon CloudFront is a content delivery network (CDN) with servers in: Europe United Kingdom Asia United States E-Learning contents such as videos and learning objects can be delivered worldwide, with low latency, for every subsidiary of Docebo multinational customers When a user requests a specific content, Amazon CloudFront automatically determines the best edge location to serve it, among the 24 available Thanks to the “you pay as you go” formula, it is possible to pay only for what you use, with no up-front costs
  • 12. - Are you already involved in E- Learning? - For new adopters: jump into E- Learning using Cloud/SAAS solutions - For early adopters/conservatives: are you in-house or Cloud? If in-house, are you planning to change? Q & A CLOUD POTENTIALS FOR E-LEARNING
  • 13. SOCIAL NETWORK CLOUD LEARNING & INTEGRATION How to successfully integrate the tools related to personal productivity with those that business has adopted in the workplace? Integrating: 1) processes 2) work activities - it is possible to Improve: 1) usability 2) productivity - of the tools used in the workplace API INTERFACING ERP CMS DATA MINING CRM VIDEO CONFERENCE
  • 14. - Why pay “more” when you can pay “for” exactly what you need? - Are you moving towards software interfacing? - Cloud: give up problems while cutting costs. Does that sound good to you? Q & A SOCIAL NETWORKS FOR CLOUD LEARNING
  • 15. Challenges CLOUD E-LEARNING CASE STUDY We want to present a case study that focuses on the benefits of adopting cloud-based solutions for E-Learning. We managed an E-Learning project for “Assofin”: this customer has very specific technical and educational requirements. All the training process is concentrated in a few months, and not spread throughout the year. Many users to be managed (around 70.000) Financial E-Learning Projects Long periods of inactivity Some peaks of traffic (from October to January)
  • 16. Challenges CLOUD E-LEARNING CASE STUDY Many users to be managed (around 70.000) Long periods of inactivity Some peaks of traffic (from October to January) Solutions allowed by Cloud Tech: Usage of shared technical resources, with a dynamic management of computing power, so as to offer top-notch performances, even under heavy traffic, with no extra charge. Moreover, at the same price we have better results, because operations are managed using RAM memory, instead of slower hard disks.
  • 17. CLOUD: RISKS, OPPORTUNITIES AND SAFETY 1. At which step are the cloud-based solutions in the technology evolution cycle? We can talk about technology that can truly revolutionize the market... or is there a risk of over- estimating what will turn out to be just a fad? Gartner says: “The industry is just beyond the Peak of Inflated Expectations, and headed for the Trough of Disillusionment” 2. Cloud hosting means that data is stored on the vendor's server: what about safety? - Where is my data? - Who is responsible for it? - What about data theft? Two final issues:
